Integrated Learning

For the remainder of December, we will continue to discuss our holiday traditions. Some of the books we will read include The Mitten, Olive the Other Reindeer, and Corduroy. A few of our centers will include:

  • Graphing our favorite candy canes
  • Making reindeer hats
  • Making gingerbread
  • Handprint menorahs

January will usher in our study of winter sights. We will begin the unit by learning all about penguins and their environments!


We will continue learning all about coding! The students will be playing a cooperative game with a partner where they get to both "write" and "read" computer code. The code consists of action cards that the students will line up for a partner to follow. All of our coding activities are leading up to the children having the opportunity to code BeeBots to move in various directions starting in February!
